While international immersion is invaluable to your résumé and your employability, studying abroad also elevates your college experience in allowing you the independence to travel and earn course credit at the same time.
These study abroad programs are geared towards Terry students and offer business course credit and experiential learning opportunities. To gain a better understanding of international business and the global marketplace, you will attend classes, tour cities and may even visit companies. Programs are led by Terry faculty during Maymester and/or summer semester.
